I met Robert Taub several months ago. My better half and I were attending The Valley Forge Body,Mind and Spirit Expo. Amy wanted to try talking to an Intuitive, healer, psychic, or seer of some kind. We walked by many. Some promised many things – the future, instantaneous healings, and the like. I walked past Robert . Twice. He radiated peace… not in a glazed “head in the clouds” kind of way. His demeanor was more like someone who seemed truly content. Peacefully fearless. We both attended his seminar and enjoyed it immensely (the group healing was amazing).  We have spoken with him several times since then. During that time Amy’s  book  “They’re Not Gone” was released. I’ve finally expanded my office. I’m giving  seminars. I’ve surround myself with truly supportive people. My life is transforming. Robert Taub has been a part of the journey. Please. Read on…..

CHICAGO, IL — According to author and healer Robert Taub, this is the most significant time in human history to be alive. The world is undergoing a profound transformation that has the potential to create a literal heaven here on Earth. This unprecedented opportunity is available to everyone now— individually, societally and as a planet.

“Since 2000, humanity has been rapidly awakening and moving into a new paradigm,” says Taub. “Vibrant health, happiness, inner peace and prosperity are more possible than ever. We really have the potential now to work together to create something much better. I’m helping my clients to do that within their own lives, which ultimately extends outward, by their examples, to benefit others, too.”

Taub provides his clients with healing and transformational guidance through individual sessions, a book series and workshops that he teaches nationwide at healing expos. His clients are national and international, and he usually works by phone.

“Because I can see and work directly with a client’s energy body as we talk, being in the same room is unnecessary,” says Taub. “Of course, in person I can connect a physical presence with the energy, and it’s nice to see faces.”

That’s one reason Taub enjoys doing workshops at expos. Taub uses his early career experience as a technology trainer to deliver highly engaging and entertaining workshops on his healing work. He will be appearing  at the Body, Mind, Spirit Expo in Voorhees, New Jersey, from May 21 through 23. His workshop on Saturday, May 22, 2–4 pm, will focus on Personal and Planetary Ascension, and he will offer guidance on awakening and healing in America, embracing the newly arriving energies, preparing for 2012 and gradually and safely activating our full DNA potential. In addition to a group healing, workshop participants also receive a copy of Taub’s book, Awakening in America®, a guidebook for spiritual awakening, the title of which was revealed to him in a dream. Part guide to awakening into higher consciousness and part spiritual adventure novel, Awakening in America® provides perspective on some of modern society’s most baffling questions: “Why haven’t I found my soul-mate and created the perfect relationship?” “Who am I anyway?” “Why am I here?”

Prior to writing the book, higher guidance also led Taub to become a healer. At one time an MBA with a comfortable corporate job, he suffered a debilitating illness and became his first client as he healed himself through diet and lifestyle changes and energetic clearing.

I had so much unreleased stress and emotional trauma that my auto-immune system began to fail,” recalls Taub. “In 1992, I started to become arthritic, and by 1994, I could barely move. All of the healing I experienced then was actually helping to pave the way for assisting with this paradigm shift we’re undergoing right now.”

Taub has dedicated the past decade of his life to pioneering his powerful transformational healing work, beginning with the study of ancient and modern wisdom and meditation in 1987, which he later learned was the year of a significant Harmonic Convergence.

His transformational healing method combines techniques he has developed and lifestyle recommendations with unique Source-given intuitive abilities that awakened in him after a major consciousness shift. This combination makes Taub unique in the realm of holistic practitioners. He can intuitively see the roots of issues and dis-ease in a client’s energy body, and he then directs Source energy to those areas to facilitate healing.

Taub regained his own health, and brings the experience of his own healing and spiritual awakening to his writing and to his clients. He says he has had great success in helping clients with depression, lack of life purpose, chronic illnesses and dis-eases that are hard to treat through typical Western methods.

“Those of us who are awakening spiritually in America face many challenges, and it’s easy to overly immerse ourselves in material diversions as a way of coping but also avoiding our spiritual needs,” he says. “Mastering the challenges on our own paths is the only way I have found to experience the ultimate joy of expanded awareness. Sharing what I have discovered while awakening is why I was drawn to become a healer and to write Awakening in America®.”

If you miss Robert in New Jersey, you can meet him at the Kryon Summer Light Conference in Sedona, Arizona, June 18 through 20. You can learn more about his work and order his book at www.awakeninginamerica.com.

Five long days and I’m tired of working
I’m going to see my boss today
In fifteen minutes I’ll be on the train
‘Cause I just got my pay

Now I could take and sock away my dough
And make me six percent a year
But it’s not much fun to wait around for that
When I can spend it while it’s here

“Just Got My Pay” – The Beach Boys

I had a great conversation with Angela Yasulitis and Dr. Nikki Pellas the brains behind Styrve Lifecoaching. These two women have become an incredible resource for networking and creating abundance in all areas of life. Angie has a great philosphy for creating more abundance and decreasing financial stress. I think these tips are practical and are part of a great foundation in personal finances. Once again Angie you’ve given me a lot to think about!

The economy has clearly taken a turn for the worse.  I am sure many of you think that is an understatment.  My question for you is, “what have you done about it?” In a study done in the 90’s over 85% of Americans suffering from anxiety and depression admitted that the anxiety they were feeling came mainly from financial stress. This stress carried over into the workplace in the form of absenteeism and low productivity.  With that in mind, at strYve, we believe those figures are even higher today.  It is time that every family and every company implements a Financial Wellness Program as part of their overall Wellness Campaign.
It is important to know that being a Financial Wellness Coach or expert is NOT the same as being a Financial Planner.  Financial Wellness is creating a plan that will get you through the hard economic times.  That same plan will help you prosper during the up times.  It may include working with a trusted Financial Advisor – but that is only one component.
Strong Financial Well Being Programs include the following components:
1.) Do you have a Household Budget? If so – do you track it and use it – making changes based upon your current economic status. In other words, many families say they have a budget – but they do NOT update it weekly – nor do they allow it to impact financial decisions.  If your budget says you can not afford an item – you should NOT buy it.
2) Do you have a plan for saving money RIGHT NOW? This plan can include anything and everything from putting energy savings light bulbs throughout your house, cutting coupons, taking your own coffee in the AM, packing your lunch, and shopping at discount stores.   This savings plan can greatly impact your future.  Many households, taking this serously can come up with $300-$500 extra dollars each month.  That money can and should be part of your savings plan and for many can create an emergency fund that is so needed in today’s economy.
3) Do you know your Net Worth? Even if it is not what you want it to be – you should know it.  You should have a feel for what you own outright with equity and what you have coming in – versus what you have going out.   Knowledge is power and it will not get any better without taking the first step to acknowledge where you are.  Once you do that – you can create a plan for where you are going.
4) Do you know your Credit Score? It is imperative that you know your credit score.  You may have mistakes on your report.  In addition, it can give you insight into past mistakes – so you do not make the same mistakes again.   Once again, it is part of the path…part of being better.
5) Don’t Rely on More Credit. If you can help it – try to address your financial issues by changing your household budget and your lifestyle.  I know it may not be fun, but if you use #1 and #2 to address these issues – you can avoid borrowing money to get through the tough times. This is a big contributor to our current financial crises.  Getting more money is often too easy.
6) Make sure you trust your Financial Advisor and know what he/she is doing for you. Ask about their education, years in the business, designations, professional affiliations, and their belief about what to do with your money during hard economic times.  Make sure they are asking you questions – instead of telling you what to do.  A trusted advisor should always know your current situation and where you want to be in 5 years, 10 years, at retirement.   Don’t wait until you have money to seek out an advisor.  I talk to so many people who tell me they never consulted anyone because they didn’t have enough to put away.  I say it is your right to put away something – $100/month, $50/month – get something started. And if that is not enough money for the advisor you are speaking to – they are not the right person for you.
Just like your own health and fitness – you are in control of your Financial Well Being.   Start today – by putting yourself on a 90 Day Financial Well Being Program – you may be surprised that knowledge is power.

When my angel comes home
It’s been hell bein’ here alone
God tell me, why has she flown
So far away
I pray she won’t stay another day
I’ll be in heaven when my angel comes home
Please come home

“Angel Come Home”-The Beach Boys

I watched this and I stopped. There comes a time when all of us are changed by an event. Forever. Death creates situations that either turns families bitter or turns them into heroes. The Downings lost their twelve year old daughter to suicide and not in the ways that you may think…

The Downings are Heroes and I hope all of you who watch this clip spread the word in any way you can.

I want them to know that they’re not alone. That their angel is “home”.

A choke of grief heart hardened I
Beyond belief a broken man too tough to cry

Surf’s Up
Aboard a tidal wave
Come about hard and join
The young and often spring you gave
I heard the word
Wonderful thing
A children’s song

” Surf’s Up” – The Beach Boys

 

 

When I’m working, there are some days that the only “sunlight” I really get is from the music that I play in my office. Music can sometimes be my closest “connection” to God. Sometimes a paticular song can be God’s closest connection to me. Spirit has such a way of communicating through music. Try it sometime. When you hop into the car, ask God to play a song just for you . Chances are you’ll be moved to tears or truly inspired.  I’ve found that what’s spiritual for me may not be spiritual for you. I still wanted to make a short list of the tunes that are really making my heart sing for the week. I hope some of you will comment on your favorites! It’ll give me new songs to download! Think of what makes your “heart” sing! Well here’s my short list,

“Surf’s Up”The Beach Boys (the last minute and half of this song is “Spiritual” beyond measure.)

“Vida La Vida”Coldplay  (a coming of age song for me. Very cool.)

” Love and Mercy” – Brian Wilson  ( The title reminds me of tolerance everytime)

“Warwick Ave” –  Duffy  ( when this gal sings…I feel it!) 

” Blue” – Lucinda Williams  ( this tune reminds me of the two most important girls in my life)

 there are so many more….but I hope this inspired people to use music this week and every week. Can’t wait to hear your favorites at work!

Sunday, back in D.C. and hanging out with a lot of old friends and loving it!

It seemed that I was surrounded by a sea of loving, gifted, and creative energy. People living by example and not opininon. Especially my old childhood friend Tony Powell. Tony’s energy was positive, almost contagious! He eagerly wanted to sop up every aspect of positivity around him, and convert it into “life excitement”.

This is definitely a man who made a clear decision to embrace family and friends, using them as a pool of wisdom AND knowledge.

He’s even been dubbed “a 21st Century Renaissance Man” by the Washington Post.  Powell is a choreographer, composer, painter, sculptor, photographer, filmmaker, graphic designer, and writer.

He is a 1995 graduate of the Juilliard School and directed his own dance company, Tony Powell/Music & Movement, for 10 years. This native Washingtonian has won numerous awards from the Maryland State Arts Council for his choreography, and his 4th String Quartet received the first ever Metro DC Dance Award for Original Music.

He has written three scores for the Internationally-renowned Parsons Dance Company, and he has created over 100 ballets for companies including The Joffrey Ballet, The Washington Ballet, The Maryland Youth Ballet, Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago, Ballet Theatre of Maryland, The Manassas Dance Company, and Odyssey Dance Theater.

His largest commissioned piece, Contredanse, for 18 dancers of Odyssey Dance Theatre, premiered in March 2007. “Impulse,” his most recent work for Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago was selected to illustrate the cover of the August 2007 issue of Dance Magazine. He currently has commissions to create works for Philadanco, the Ailey School , and Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company in Denver, Colorado.

Support for the creation of his work has come from The Cafritz Foundation, The Washington Post Company, The Meyer Foundation, Verizon, Philip Morris, The Mead Family Foundation, Allesee Family Foundation, The Dreyfus Foundation, and The Philip L. Graham Fund, among others. He has taught ballet and modern dance techniques at The Washington School of Ballet, The Academy of the Maryland Youth Ballet, Towson University, Harrisburg Dance Conservatory, Manassas School of Dance, Joy of Motion, Feet First, The Duke Ellington School of the Arts, and Jones Haywood School of Ballet. Also Tony has a new blog http://wwww.tonypowell.wordpress.com its a work in progress.. and it may already be up and running as I type this.

Once again Tony, good luck on all your ventures! It has been a pleasure and most of all….FUN!
